Check this Text and make some changes: Most Mercedes cars are fitted with the Active Service System (known as ASSYST). On vehicles fitted with the ASSYST system, the basic service is carried out and additional items such as spark plugs, fuel filter and air filters are changed depending on age or mileage. When these additional items are replaced, they will be quoted for separately by your Service Consultant.
The majority of newer Mercedes models are equipped with Service ASSYST PLUS. This is also a variable service schedule alternating from A to H service, with the letters indicating how much time and work will need to be performed within the workshop. The ‘A’ Service will be a basic service whilst the ‘H’ Service would indicate a more comprehensive service.

What does a timing belt do?
A timing belt is a rubber belt, flat on one side, and toothed on the other, which is located inside your car engine.
This timing belt wraps around several components including the camshaft, the water pump, crank shaft, and belt tensioners, and is responsible for managing engine timing to ensure that your valves and pistons do not collide with each other.
A cam chain keeps the timing in sync via a length of chain, instead of a rubber belt. Both do the same job, however a cam chain is considered more robust.
The timing belt plays an vital role inside your engine. Timing belt failure usually results in a loss of engine power, and internal engine damage.
